If the recent still image for the Toy Story short (which will be shown along with The Muppets movie) isn’t enough to get your Pixar senses tingling, then the new trailer for Pixar’s next feature film definitely will. Scheduled for release on June 22, 2012, ‘Brave’ is Pixar’s latest CG animated feature, and its first fairy tale film. ‘Brave’ is a milestone because it is also Pixar’s first animated film that has a dark and more mature tone (at least when compared to their previous films.)
Expanding beyond the Brave teaser trailer, this new clip gives us so much more to sink our teeth into.
Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In Brave, a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Witch (Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late.
